In the vikings.com Game Summary of today’s 35-9 Vikings win over Seattle, we identified the game-deciding moment was the 2nd-quarter fumble recovery by the Vikings special teams unit and subsequent Bernard Berrian TD reception that made the score 21-0 just before halftime.
It was fitting that the game-deciding play was turned in by the special teams. Both the Vikings offense and defense put together complete performances, so the big special teams play – the fumble was forced by S Jamarca Sanford and recovered by Farwell – allowed that unit to contribute significantly as well.
While speaking with reporters after the game, Vikings LB Chad Greenway, who plays on the Vikings kick coverage unit, spoke about that crucial play.
“The biggest play of the game to me was the special teams play,” Greenway said. “The unbelievable hit and play. We have wanted that for years and we finally got one and now we can get those things rolling and we can feed off of that. It makes our offense and defense better.”
